I had tea yesterday with a great theologian,
and he asked me,
“What is your experience of God’s will?”

I liked that question –
for the distillation of thought hones thought in others.
Clarity, I know, is freedom.

What is my experience of God’s will?
Everyone is a traveler. Most all need lodging, food,
and clothes.

I let enter my mouth what will enrich me.  
I wear what will make my eye content,
I sleep where I will wake with the strength to deeply love
all my mind can hold.

What is God’s will for a wing?
Every bird knows that.

St. Teresa of Avila
